Artists Profile

 Zoe Singleton

After graduating from Goldsmiths College London, Zoe Singleton pursued a career in textiles working for large corporate companies before running her own holiday and events business. Zoe Singleton's long standing passion for geology led her to carving stone. "Learning to carve stone felt like a natural way to express myself and the perfect link to between art and geology." Zoe Singleton's inspiration for garden sculpture usually comes from natural forms and patterns and often from rock itself, I love fossils and strata and also find inspiration in my garden.

"I love to draw and have found a great relationship between the charcoal stick with which I draw and the chisel with which I carve." With garden sculpture Zoe likes to carve boldly often experimenting with shape or texture in the design of sculptural forms, always refering to her drawings for my inspiration. Zoe's drawings are the foundation of much of her work. "I love the creation of chisel marks on slate and the deep textures I apply to Bath and Portland stone." 

A passion for poetry and rhyme is  the source of inspiration for Zoe Singleton's letter cutting. "I often include images and texture to convey the words selected and enhance the design and sentiment. Travel is also a design inspiration with recent trips to Morocco the south of France influencing my work as well as the beauty of the Devon coastline and moorland where I live". Please take a look at Zoe Singleton's gallery page to view examples of my garden sculpture and letter cutting work.
